  2. No way. everything about that is wrong. I'm not trying to be harsh, but you need to read a bit first about lighting, media, water, etc. It takes a bit of time and money to get started growing good cannabis, and then more money and more time. To me its worth it, if you want to grow, start here bud.

  3. It will do for a few weeks, growth wont be stellar but it will keep the plant alive until you get a proper light.
    Other then that, did you fill the hole you planted in with any soil/compost? looks like its pretty poor soil in that ground you got there.
     
  4. Yeah I put good soil my friend..... I have it's in a metal lil house in my back yard in side the shed/lil house, to me it looked perfect to put a couple plants in the floor with grow lights to let my babies have "unlimited grow space in theorie... then top/dim as needed... I will be putting a couple fans and 2 HPS LIGHTS FOR 4 PLANTS... I GROW OUTDOOR I HAVE 6 GROWING IN POTS..I TOOK A BABY RUNT AND PUT THE LIL GROW ROOM.. TO SEE HOW THEY REACT......

  5. Thanks for the reply I shoulda explained a lil better...... I'm tryna grow ""indoor"" but put them in the ground to have "unlimited grow space " then top as needed my ""grow space is a decent shak in my back yard so the temp is all the same as out side jus Mabey a lil temp difference but fans and water jugs around will help.... all I was thinking is jus the lighting yeah the shak is the same temp as outside but when I shut the doors it gets dark I'm doing 12hours light 8 hours dark.........

  6. I would mulch the whole floor with some hay, straw, bark chips, dried leaves...etc. It will help feed the soil and retain moister. Aim for a good 2"-3" of mulch and at least cover a 1'-2' wide circle around the plant.
     
  7. Thanks for the advice friend I'll keep in touch

  8. What kind of bulb is in that utility light? If it an incandescent it’s not gonna help. Wrong spectrum. If it’s a CFL it will work for a Little to keep plant alive. Also a metal house sounds really hot.

  9. It's a cfl my friend and I will be monitoring the temp with a temp senser it notifies me thu message when temps exceed 95 degrees

  10. Well good luck. And was curious about the 12 light 8 dark you said you use? Seems odd?? Is that ENOUGH light?

  13. That’s not a cfl. It’s a crappy led bulb. And the wrong spectrum for veg growth. I don’t even think that little bulb will keep that plant alive man. Do some research. You can find the right kind of lights fairly cheap.

  19. Either of the CFL (the ones that look like a coiled up snake) should do. Pick the one that is stronger.
     
  20. Yes use the CFL "squiggly"/snake coil bulbs. Aim for 6500k/5000k and highest wattage you can find. Unless you're flowering from seed then 2700k will work...5000k/6500k has shown to produce denser buds, while 2700k has shown to produce more airy buds.

    Someone with more experience may correct me if I'm wrong, but I've done a lot of research over the years.
